The Ohio Crush finished their regular season at home Saturday afternoon against the Michigan Vipers. Finishing strong with a score of 40-20, the Crush earned their way to the playoffs. The playoffs begin September 6th, so that gives the Crush plenty of time to really sharpen their skills and heal up. If they win on the 6th, then they play again on the 13th. The Ohio Crush have earned home field advantage all through the playoffs. Playoff games will be on Saturday as usual, but the time will be 4:00 instead of 5:00 due to the days getting shorter.

Once the Crush have won the two playoff games, they will be off to Fort Wayne, Indiana, for the championship game on September 20th.

Scoring for the Crush on Saturday was quarterback Jon Mason, who had one touchdown and threw for two more. The big scorer of the game was Vance Taylor, who had two touchdowns. Vance caught a pass from Jon Mason for a touchdown, and he had a kickoff return run for a touchdown. Justin Huff scored on a quarterback pass, Demetrius Jackson intercepted the ball for a touchdown run, and Antwon Kendall rushed for a touchdown.

Head Coach Woody Bowers said, “I am really pleased at how hard the guys have come out and played. We keep getting better, and we look forward to the playoffs.”

From now until the playoffs begin, the Crush will be putting on their cooking aprons. They have a pig roast fundraiser scheduled for this Saturday, August 16th from 5:00 pm until midnight. It will be held at the Eagles at 376 Quick Road. Pre-sale tickets are available for $12, and $15 on the day of the roast. Tickets include your foot and draft beer while it lasts. Kids under 5 will eat for free with a paying adult. See your favorite Ohio Crush player for details and to buy tickets. The proceeds of this fundraiser help to pay for the expenses of the team. It’s a great cause, so come on out and have a good time with the best football team around.

Copes Is Air Force Museum’s Newest Shutterbug PDF Print E-mail

Retired Tecumseh teacher’s versatility behind the lens earns him access to all curated planes.

After ending what he considers an “amazing career” with Tecumseh Local Schools, Jim Copes recently embarked on a new journey as he accepted a volunteer position with the United States Museum of the Air Force.


Copes, who taught English to sophomores at Tecumseh High School for 32 years, said he is enjoying retirement because of his ability to dabble in his hobby of photography, yet not make it into another job. “I like having the ability to say, ‘no, I don’t want to do that,’” said Copes. His new volunteer position at the Air Force Museum will afford him all the benefits of retirement, as he will be able to essentially create his own schedule, and work on his own time.

After falling off of a ladder a few years ago, Copes shattered his heel plate, and his surgeon told him he would likely never walk again. It took him nearly a year to walk again, and another to learn to walk proficiently. He said he had always dabbled in photography throughout his life, but after regaining the ability to walk, Copes began to really get into the hobby, as it allowed him to move about and capture the action surrounding him. A lover of the human form, Copes said although his style varies widely, his favorite subjects to shoot are human beings and animals.

Arrow Spotlight: All Eyes Are On Tennis Sensation PDF Print E-mail

This week’s Tecumseh Spotlight Athlete features tennis superstar Taylor Culbertson, as the senior wraps up her career with the Arrows.

Without a doubt, Taylor Culbertson knows about success. The Tecumseh tennis senior is preparing for her last year on the Arrows’ court, and there is not much that this decorated tennis sensation hasn’t accomplished.

She has earned all-conference throughout her entire career, including the league’s Player of the Year as a junior. According to the league website, Culbertson is 60-5 after her first three years with the Arrows, while she has also had success throughout the post-season tournament, This coming year, she will be aiming for one last dream she has yet to accomplish…the state tournament.

“I would love to make it to state this year,” she said. “We have a really tough district and it will be a tough challenge.”

To help prepare for what she hopes will be a magical season, Culbertson has been training very intensely this summer, and played in some of the top tournaments in the region.

“I have traveled a lot this summer, but have stayed in the Ohio Valley area with the qualifiers,” Culbertson said. The senior had to get through the area and district qualifier to advance to the Midwest Closed tournament in Indianapolis.

“They take three people from the area qualifier to advance to the districts, then they take like 16 players to qualify for the Closed,” Culbertson said, who stated she finally advanced to the Closed by qualifying this summer. “I have made it by my ranking in the past, but this year I actually qualified for it this time.”

Culbertson is ranked as the number 62 player in the Midwest in the 18U age division.

She also participated at the Nationals in Memphis, Tennessee in July, where was initially an alternate based on her ranking.

“I don’t go to a lot of national tournaments, so I don’t have a lot of national points,” she said. “I got notified a week before that I was in. It was the clay court Nationals, and I don’t really play on clay. It was a really good experience for me.”

Culbertson takes her game very seriously, and looks forward to what the future brings to her at the next level.

“I want to play in college definitely,” she said, talking about her game going to the next level. “I just need more practice, and playing more. I need to work on the things to make me better.”

Entering his 21st year in the field of education, Jay Burkholder will exchange the 28 fifth-graders in his classroom for more than 400 students as he assumes the role of Principal at Donnelsville Elementary School.

Olive Branch H.S. Added To List of Ohio’s Most Endangered Historic Sites PDF Print E-mail

Preservation Ohio, Ohio’s oldest statewide preservation organization, announces the 2014 Ohio’s Most Endangered Historic Sites.

Gleaned from properties submitted statewide, these properties represent 11 of the most notable and fragile properties. Some have been destined for demolition and others are falling to demolition because of lack of maintenance and care. Either way, their loss will deeply affect their community and reduce our list of historic properties statewide. The list below tells the story of everything from an airport terminal to a farmstead -- mansions and those of a humble origin.

Preservation Ohio hopes that the attention brought to these properties through this listing will alert others to their plight and perhaps those of other properties statewide.

When Grant Kaffenbarger entered the Calf Scramble arena on the final day of the 2014 Clark County Fair, he was walking in the footsteps of his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him. When he exited the ring, victorious, as he had captured a scrambling calf, Grant quite literally brought the Kaffenbarger tradition of catching calves full-circle.

Lloyd Kaffenbarger, Grant’s great-grandfather, started the Clark County Fair’s annual Calf Scramble 60 years ago with his friend Paul Deer. Greg Kaffenbarger, Lloyd’s grandson, said Deer got the idea of a calf scramble after seeing it done at a fair in Texas. “He told Grandpa that we had to get something like that going on in Clark County,” Greg said.

The two men soon put together the annual fair tradition that so many Clark County residents look forward to each year. “It’s a big deal, I think…it’s like the
